Hello all. I just switched over from AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 to 2011, and of course am having trouble getting everything set up the way I like it. I usually create a square in model space around what I want to show in the viewport. Then I go to paperspace and do a "zoom window" in the paper space viewport and snap the zoom window to the corners of the square. CAD 2011 doesn't seem to let me do this. I'm pretty sure it is a SETVAR issue, anyone know of the variable that needs to be set to allow me to do this again?
Thanks in advance for any and all help. If my question isn't clear, please ask and I'll try to explain it better.

OK, I got it. I was also unable to snap to anything when plotting in paperspace using the window to delineate what I wanted to plot.
If you are having this problem, the variable OSNAPCOORD needs to be set to 0. This can be done by typing
SETVAR OSNAPCOORD 0
I did this and it still took awhile to "take". I fiddled around with typing "INT" before delineatining my window, then started using F3 as the shortcut. All of a sudden it started doing it on it's own.
